I work at a tax office and this time of year is a more stressful time than most for me. I am so thankful for a cubicle mate that also loves Christian music. We play it softly throughout the day and when this song comes on we both pause and “just breathe”. Life is stressful and sometimes we do wonder if we matter and what it’s all about. All the Lord wants from us is relationship. Really. Just to be with Him and to take moments throughout the day to acknowledge Him and whisper thank you and to just sense that He is there and present in our work a day lives.
I am becoming and trying to reorder my life by laying “down what is good to find what is best.” For each of us it is different. But spending time with Jesus if only for one minute occasionally throughout the day is a step in the right direction. For a moment I am asking you to watch the video and JUST BREATHE.
“When the stress is on the rise in my heart I feel You say
Just Breathe, just breathe
Come and rest at My feet
And be, just be
Chaos calls but all you really need
Is to just breathe
Is to take it in fill your lungs
The Peace of God that overcomes
Let your weary spirit rest
Lay down what’s good and find what’s best
BREATHE – Jonny Diaz
